Friday ... Saturday .. THE Fall Video

Lets start with Tuesdays videos since I know you all was the see the fall video...

Jumping Video - as you can tell he was super touchy, he mellowed out a little and we he had some ok fences.. nothing id write home about.

Bad Henry- The fall... enjoy.

Friday in the trainer ride Henry jumped a legit jump... J is crazy brave! He did stop twice with her but they jumped something that scares me! lol

Here is a video- this was after they did it a few times- the first time was a good one and the second was a bad spot but hey he still jumped it! Sorry it's sideways- I just kind of took a little clip spur of the moment.

Saturday I woke up to my trainer texting asking if I could get her a coffee on my way to the barn cause she was running late... I chuckeled, got her a coffee on my way and let her know I was coming but would be a bit late...

We had a lesson and we got to ride outside! The footing was great and Henry felt like a different horse- in a good way, not that he isn't a good horse to ride normally but his gaits left awesome!

There were only three of us which is small for Saturday but I really enjoy the two people who were there so it was fun :)

The arena that we rode in is really really big so I will do my best to draw a picture of the jumps we did... this is just half of the arena that we rode in .. the arena is really double this size...






So we started with the exercise on the left 1.... we trotted through the polls, then one side of them was put up and we did it again- trot in and canter through/out, then they were put up to littler verticals and we trotted in and cantered through/out. We went both ways through it and it was hard but fun... it was a bounce btw :)

Then we moved on to some verticals... 2 to 3- straight to 2 as if 3 wasn't there and then turn to 3.. we did this back and forth with the same straight to the first jump then turn approach. Then we did 4 to 5 and 5 to 4 with the same approach as above.

Last thing we did was 4 to 5 to 2 to 3, left hand turn/roll back to 2. It was good and bad but we ended good.


Cooled him out on a walk around the property with E and L.

Lots of cleaning today- cleaned Henry, cleaned my tack, filled his water, grained him, even clipped Henry's muzzle, bridle path and ears.

My new shirt came from dapplebay.com!!! LOVE it!

Nom Nom Nom

Enjoying some post lesson grass... it was a little muggy today! Weird warmth but not clear skies.
